Carpenter House is dedicated toward the healing of individuals and families.  We also see Veterans under the Veterans Choice program.  Our goal is to give people back a quality of life they either lost or never had.  I use a multifaceted approach to provide a safe place to process issues and create change within the individual’s or family’s life.
